Bret McCann says he's frustrated that federal legislation aimed at purging the Criminal Code of so-called zombie laws is seeing no movement in the House of Commons after it was introduced one year ago. "The minister has done nothing to move Bill C-39 forward even though the House sat for several weeks in February," said McCann in a statement Thursday.
Three people were taken to hospital after a house fire in south Edmonton Tuesday morning. Two men were able to get out of the house on their own while a woman was removed by firefighters, said Maya Filipovic, spokesperson for Edmonton fire rescue. All three are between the ages of 20 and 40, she said. There is no update on the conditions of the three people. Firefighters also removed a dog, which died in the fire, Filipovic added.
The Edmonton Police Service unveiled its new $5.9 million state-of-the-art Air 1 helicopter Friday at the Villeneuve airport, in Sturgeon County. "Because the new Air 1 is better, stronger, and faster than our previous helicopters, we can provide a greater level of safety and support across the city," said Greg Preston, acting police chief. Chosen for its affordability, versatility, and dependability, the Airbus H-125 model is considered one of the best helicopters in service, police said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
